The harm of rice blast and the importance of rice have always received widespread attention. This review aims to explore the molecular identification and breeding strategies of rice blast resistance genes, providing a detailed overview. It elaborates on the methods for identifying blast resistance genes, including past genetic research and the application of modern molecular biology technology, as well as molecular breeding strategies for blast resistance. It emphasizes the importance of molecular marker assisted breeding of resistant varieties. This review provides detailed information on molecular breeding methods, showcasing developed blast resistant rice varieties and their applications in different regions. This is one of the main results, combined with current challenges and future prospects, to help readers understand the future direction of this field. The article summarizes the importance of molecular identification of blast resistant genes in rice and molecular breeding strategies for global food security, And how to address future challenges, this topic provides a theoretical basis for future research and decision-making.
